bloodied by one of the most notorious shootings in california history. dana bash was over at the emotional announcement on capitol hill. tell our viewers, dana, how it unfolded. >> reporter: wolf, of all of the gun control measures that president obama announced earlier this month, banning the assault weapons at least reviving the ban is going to be the most difficult to pass here in congress. even the primary senate sponsor says it will take years. for dianne feinstein, it's personal. >> supervisor harvey milk have been shot and killed. >> reporter: the death of her colleagues, including harvey milk, the first openly gay public official in america was so traumatic, she rarely discusses it. you were very close to that tragic shooting. but here at the launch, she announced it great detail. >> i was the one who found supervisor milk's body and put a finger in a bullet hole trying to get a pulse. once you have been through one of these episodes, one you see what the crime scene is like, it changes your view of weapons. >> she put on an elaborate event. even getting permission from d.c. to dis
's bipartisan goodwill already seems to be a very distant memory. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is standing by. >> reporter: republicans are arguing that the president is trying to foist the center right country in the words of the senate minority leader. he said, not a great way to start off the second term. the senate republican leader had his sound bite on the president's speech ready to go. >> the era of liberalism is unabashedly far left of center inauguration speech certainly brings back memories of the democratic party of ages past. >> reporter: far different from the restrained response the house gop leader gave us hours after the speech. >> you know, i think that the president did a fine job certainly laying out what he would like to see happen as far as the future of the country. we have some differences. hopefully we can bridge those differences. >> reporter: cantor was coming from a bipartisan post inaugural lunch. now with the inauguration over and the pressure to be respectful past, conservatives are eager to share their disgust. >> he's trying to throw a bone
. obviously this game will win out tonight. correspondent dana bash joins us. who is planning to be there and who isn't? which i know is a political statement in a political town. >> what's fascinating is they built this platform, 1,600 seats are available on the platform. it is tradition for the supreme court justices to be there. they will be there for the joint chiefs of staff to be there. they will be there. and for governors, senators and lawmakers as well as, of course, members of the president and vice president's family. for the most part, we do expect lawmakers to be there. one thing that we were sort of looking at is whether house republicans are going to come. deirdre walsh, our house producer, was at the republican retreat last week. and she heard several members saying, you know, it's a long weekend, a holiday weekend. i'm going to go home. they didn't feel compelled to be here necessarily. we'll be watching to see that. this is traditionally a nonpartisan event. i don't even say bipartisan. this is a tribute to the system working. so it is a second inaugural, but
